Artspace111, a commercial gallery in Fort Worth, in partnership with Love Texas Art Foundation, a nonprofit extension of the gallery, has announced the open call for its 11th Annual Texas Juried Exhibition.

Last year, for the tenth anniversary of the exhibition, Artspace111 increased the total cash awards from $5,000 to $15,000. This year, the gallery will continue to offer $15,000 in prizes, including a $10,000 first prize award. The first prize winner will also have the opportunity to exhibit at Artspace111 in a solo or group exhibition in 2025. Margaret (Maggie) Adler, Curator of Paintings, Sculpture, and Works on Paper at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art (the Carter) will serve as this year’s juror.

Ms. Adler has been at the Carter for over a decade. Though her scholarly research is rooted in 19th-century art, her curatorial practice focuses on collaborations with living artists for site-specific installations. Some artists Ms. Adler has worked with are Jean Shin, Gabriel Dawe, Mark Dion, and Justin Favela. Recent exhibitions organized by Ms. Adler include Emancipation: The Unfinished Project of Liberation (2023), Sandy Rodriguez In Isolation (2021), and The Perilous Texas Adventures of Mark Dion (2020). Ms. Adler holds a BA in classical languages and the history of art and an MA in the history of art from Williams College.
